Can Rit Dye Be Used For Different Textures?

I have an older hand me down couch that used to be a cream color. After about 10 years and 5 pets, it could use some help. I was wondering if Rit dye could be applied to it and set in so everyone that sat on it didn’t come away with a different color on their garments. I believe it is cotton and it has stripes that are of varying shades of cream and slightly different texture (smoother). Thank you for any input

Dear Chris,
I am sorry, you can’t dye this sofa. Please see my column of July 2003 for more remarks on this subject. Perhaps a washable slipcover would be a good option.
